LiuGong North America Unveils New Wheeled Material Handlers for Scrap and Forestry Industries

ROCKY MOUNT, Va. – LiuGong North America, a subsidiary of Guangxi LiuGong Machinery Co., Ltd., introduced its new MH series of wheeled material handlers at a recent event held at a local recycling yard. The MH40, MH40XD, MH50, and MH60 models are designed to meet the specific needs of the scrap recycling and forestry industries in North America.

Focus on Innovation and Customer Needs
Attendees at the event were greeted with breakfast tacos and given the opportunity to examine the new machines. The robust build and advanced features of the MH series highlighted LiuGong's commitment to innovation and exceeding customer expectations. Each model boasts unique capabilities tailored to address the diverse requirements of North American scrapyards and forestry operations.

Engineered for Performance and Uptime
The MH series leverages LiuGong's 65 years of experience in machinery manufacturing and 60 years in building wheeled material handlers. The machines are powered by high-quality components, including Cummins Tier 4 final engines, Kessler axles, Dana transmissions, Kawasaki hydraulics, and Pierce fronts. This focus on quality components is designed to minimize downtime compared to competitors who may face parts availability issues. MH40 stands out with its 130Amp Hubbell controller and a 25kWh Baldor generator, both exceeding competitor offerings in capacity. Additionally, the MH series is built for easy maintenance, with features like ground-level access to auto greasers minimizing downtime and maximizing productivity.

Operator Efficiency and Safety
The machines prioritize operator comfort and efficiency with pilot-operated controls for precise handling and onboard diagnostics that allow operators to monitor hydraulic pressure from the cabin.

Competitive Advantage and Customer Support
LiuGong positions the MH series as a strong value proposition. The competitively priced machines deliver high performance without the premium associated with larger brands. Notably, LiuGong is a publicly traded company with a $20 billion market cap and the world's leading seller of wheel loaders, showcasing its established presence in the global construction machinery market.

Customer support is another key differentiator for LiuGong. While established brands may face parts availability challenges, LiuGong offers a comprehensive 3-year, 4,000-hour warranty on the entire machine, providing peace of mind to customers.

A New Standard for the Industry

Built in collaboration with Jewell Machinery in Rocky Mount, Virginia, the MH series is designed and assembled in North America to optimize operating costs. With 360-degree lift capacity and a suite of advanced features, these machines aim to set a new standard for excellence in the material handling industry.
